Getting a bit chippy out there

This stuff chips real easy. Should I be worried?

Hard to say why the tile is chipping while cutting, Tom, could be the blade, the saw, or the tile itself. There is a recent thread from am member who was also trying to figure out why his tile was chipping.

I like your cut G

Dan,

Thanks for your reply. That’s a good thread. It gave me some ideas. I tried a plunge cut and using the ol’ carpenter’s trick with blue painters tape over the cut. I’ve had real good luck with the tape. Also for this tile anyway, a faster cut rather than a slow cut. Seems counterintuitive, but it’s an acceptable amount of chipping. Push tile just the point where the RPM of the saw begins to slow. See results below. As for the chipping corners, just gotta be gentle. I hope the tile holds up to kids and wifey.

I know they aren't cheap, but different blade, find one the tile likes.

Yes sir. A quality blade helps. I liked the blade that came with my Dewalt 10 incher.

Starting to look like something Mrs. Tom might be happy with.
